About the Project

One day, while surfing the net, I happened upon a cool RC-toy...
Of course, I couldn't control it, so there was only one thing to do...
Modify the Heck out of it!

Battery arrived!

Got the battery and a charger today.

The battery is a Hyperion 3S 20-30C 800mAh, and when I put it on the scales I got a nice surprise. It only weighed 68grams - 70 with the connector from the old battery - so I'm shaving 13 grams off of the total weight of the X-UFO. That, and I'm doubling the power... That translates into FLIGHT TIME!

I got the battery and charger from Elefun.no, a Norwegian shop, but most well-stocked R/C-hobby stores, particularly those catering to 'electric-flight' enthusiasts, have them in stock.

Just found that a Norwegian shop sells an 850mA pack that might be even better...
